Arts & Culture Podcasts >

BINGE is a podcast where I talk to my favorite creative people about their favorite TV-show. And life, art, and whathaveya. I am Janina Rook, a comedian and TV-journalist based in Los Angeles and Berlin, Germany. I love to binge TV and have long, deep conversations with people. So I basically made a podcast about what I do every night. I also truly believe that TV-shows are the Rorschach-Test of the 21st century. What we watch, tells a lot about what we like, themes and struggles we have through our lives, and what brings us true joy. So in these conversations we are not nerding out too hard about the shows themselves – we dive deep into my guests psyche. That sounds creepy. I hope none of my guests is reading this... Get your snacks - the show is about to start!
